Halloween Parody 2014
« on: October 13, 2014, 10:23:09 PM »
Happy Halloween!

What would Halloween be without a new Halloween parody? This is one of mine that was rejected, which Neil kindly painted (and improved!) for me. Now I'm going to share it with the Forum as a special Halloween treat. Hope you like it.

I'm going to have a few printed as postcards, so if you'd like one, just send me a PM with your mailing address. Not sure how quick turn around time will be to get them printed, but hopefully you'll receive them by Halloween :)

Please note this is NOT a Topps release! It's just a Halloween parody for forum members.

I can't believe they didn't accept that concept. Great job!

Thanks everyone.
Well this is my rough. Maybe that's why it was rejected ;) Neil really turned it into something cool. Originally I was hoping to have it be a promo card or something, since there hasn't been a parody of the Postcard series itself yet.

Also thanks to those who offered to pay postage, etc. But not necessary because this will be my treat ;)

John,

Thanks for making the 2014 Halloween season special for us forum members! This was a lot of fun to paint especially because your rough was so well done! Hope to see a lot more of 'em in the future!

Some should start receiving their postcard soon (today maybe?). Not everyone will get them by Halloween unfortunately. However, when you do, let me know how you like 'em!

Happy Halloween!

I received mine today John, and really like it!      Perfect timing.      Super sharp.    Very nicely done.   It makes for an extra special Wicked Halloween!

Maybe this was intended, but since we did not have a Topps Halloween postcard set this year, the ghostcards gag, that the cards are blank and made with invisible ink, make it even funnier and more relevant. Or maybe that was a major point in the creation of the title and I'm just slow on the draw. No matter, it's great!

Well done.  Great to see someone come in to fill the Halloween Postcard void.

Glad you like it. I am totally happy with the quality and feel of the cards too. Neil did an incredible job on the artwork.
I didn't realize that, but yeah that part of the gag could be taken that way :)

Haha! Well actually I just had them done at VistaPrints.com, so I could always order more...
That site is crazy, you can have all sorts of stuff made, like mugs, shirts, etc. I was tempted to have some shirts or pens made up. As you can see I did get address labels, cause they were pretty cheap.

So Halloween has came and went for 2014. When I went to my Halloween Postcard binder and explained to all the Halloween Postcards that their ranks would not be joined by a new set this year the response was shock, dismay and sadness. They could not understand how they were judged not worth continuing for this year. I told them everything would be alright. That a special Wacky Fan had stepped up to save the day and created one special card to join their ranks and restore order to the Wacky Halloween Universe. I told them that Fan's name is Duznt and they rejoiced. End of story.   ;)

I left on Saturday morning,  before the mail arrived, to head to Baltimore for 4 weeks. So I probably have received the card at home. Unfortunately, it will be a few days after Thanksgiving before I can see it in person. Thanks again for your generosity sharing with the group!
